2. I'd make a joke about Republicans,

But it would be an insult to the baboons.
Can't even imagine having that kind of experience. How wonderful for you, and thank you for sharing it with us!

smart enough to use us when they can, even though they hate us.

4. Dang! I thought you were setting us up for a photo of Lindsay, Mitch, Kevin and entourage

Coming out of a room! But...disappointed as I am, I enjoyed your baboons and am happy you're having a good time!

"See you soon, you big baboon". (c. 1957)

9. Yes, but there are 7 of us in group and 6 are Republicans.

It's interesting to listen to their comments. They think they're being PC when hearing about the horrors of apartheid although they aren't moved by how terrible it was. And none of them really listen to what the guides say and will repeat a question that's already been answered. All are retired and upper middle class Americans. From NM, PA, OH, and TX. Two married couples and two women who left their husbands at home.

Today we fly to Johannesburg.
